So as I sit and watch the Vancouver Winter Games, I am also participating in the The Knitting Olympics. This is a new endeavor for me, and it will definitely be a challenge. I am attempting the February Lady Sweater. I'm using Valley Yarns Colrain in burgundy on size 7 needle. Last night I cast on at 8 pm EST --- 8 times because I couldn't get the right amount of yarn estimated for the long tail cast on --- I kept ending up with a way too long tail! I knit about 4 inches of the yoke (and re-knit several rows several times!). I have 20 more repeats before I move on to the next step in the yoke.
This will be challenging to knit in the allotted time span. I will not have a great deal of knitting time this coming week -- two evenings out for Lenten Bible Study and Ash Wednesday services, plus all the usual school stuff, but then the following week I have 3 days of Winter Break. (The kids have the whole week, but our school board in its infinite wisdom decided to put 2 of our professional development days at the end of what has always been a full week of winter break!) So, wish me luck!
